Convert Percent Formula to Text Formula Heather Bryant12-05-2017 16:14 QuickBaseCoach Dev./Training12-05-2017 16:37 Blanca Anderson06-18-2019 16:59 • 1.  Convert Percent Formula to Text Formula

I'm working with a numeric formula displaying as a percent. I need to extract this value and use it in a text field. When I put it in there, it displays with a string of 10+ decimal points.

I tried converting the percent formula to a simple number formula and a text formula, and they all produce the decimal point string.

Anyone know how to convert a formula percent field to a value in a text formula field?

No problem

The value for say 12.475% is actually stored as 0.12475 but just displays as 12.475% for visual purposes.  Or if you show fewer decimals in the field properties it would get shows as say 12.4%

So use

ToText(Round ([my percent field],0.01) * 100) and that would give you 12.47

or

ToText(Round ([my percent field],0.1) * 100) for 12.4

or

ToText(Round ([my percent field]) * 100) for 12

ToText(Round ([my percent field]) * 100) for 12

I would like for my percent text conversion to display as 12%
I am using the formula above
Please and thank you!

Please disregard above.  I fixed it :)

New formula:

ToText(Round([Task 1 Progress])*100)&"% "
